With the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, developer Mercury Steam is adding a Windows PC release to the launch list, and it looks like the original game --which only came on console-- may also be getting some belated desktop treatment, with an entry for "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Early Access Comp" appearing in the Steam CDR registry database (thanks NeoGAF).

The Content Description Record scrapes all updates to public data in the Steam client, and catches a lot of upcoming games as they are added by publishers during testing processes, and its predictions, while not a confirmation, do seem to come true more often than not.

Our best guess would be that the "Early Access Comp" descriptor could be some kind of pre-order incentive or discount offer for pre-order customers of the sequel.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is due in 2013 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

It would be a bit stupid to release the sequel on PC but not the first game. I was really disappointed (though not surprised) when they didn't offer a PC port, hopefully they're really making it.

I don't care if it's a crappy port done quick or keyboard setup is awkward, I mean look at DMC 4 a few years ago :-) All I'd wish is to be able to play the game from start to end. Unless this happens I won't be buying the sequel, I don't like half assed stories.

If Konami wants to have a PC customer base they need to treat PC gamers as much as they treat console ones, especially if a game has a story in sequels.

the steam db also shows the new FF7 that SE released a few months ago, as well as FF8.
